We're Hiring: Front End Designer/Developer Position


Dark0ne

Recommended Posts

As part of our ongoing efforts to expand our development team we’re looking for a front end developer/designer to join us. In the long term you'll be a major creative driving force behind Nexus Mods, shaping how our entire brand looks and feels for millions of users. This position is based in our offices in Exeter in the UK, it is not a remote working position and we cannot sponsor VISA applications so you will need a right to work in the UK or EU.

 

We always post our job openings up on the site before passing on the requirements to local recruiters. We'd rather recruit from within the community if we can and we've been very lucky thus far finding staff who know and use Nexus Mods.

 

 

The Role

We're looking for a senior designer / front end developer to join our team at our office in Exeter, UK. The ideal candidate will have a strong design background with experience working with HTML/CSS/JS and be technically proficient enough to integrate directly into our projects to implement design changes directly, so a working knowledge of at least one javascript framework as well as working knowledge of version control is what we’re looking for.

 

If you’re the kind of person who likes implementing cool new features, understands responsive web design, loves making sleek user interfaces and wants to showcase your work to a large and engaging audience then this is the job for you!

 

We work as closely as possible to an agile project management scheme and every team member's input is highly valued - we're looking for people who can constructively discuss and present new ideas in our meetings.

 

Ultimately, we're looking for people who are keen to learn and flexible in their approach with a strong background in website design.

 

 

Your Background

 

  • You'll need production experience with HTML/CSS/JS and be comfortable with all related technologies such as the frameworks for each.
  • Any experience with HTML/CSS/JS in a desktop environment such as Electron would be a plus, but isn’t essential.
  • Experience creating and maintaining single page applications would also be a plus.

 

Responsibilities

 

  • Working with our web team to design new features and functionality for the Nexus Mods website.
  • Working as part of the Vortex team and helping with UI and UX.
  • Occasionally helping out the community team with imagery for site content.
  • Participating in team meetings, keeping track of your workflow using project management tools.
  • Working with everyone at Nexus Mods to shape the future of our platform.

 

Requirements and Skills

 

  • HTML/CSS.
  • Javascript and its frameworks (React / Node / Vue / etc.).
  • Strong design background (Photoshop, etc.).
  • Strong communication skills both verbally and written (English).
  • Right to work in the UK.

 

Bonus Skills

 

  • Electron or any other desktop applications that use web front ends.
  • Experience integrating with Ruby on Rails/PHP.
  • Experience with code testing.
  • An understanding of games modding and knowledge of Nexus Mods.
  • A sense of humour.
  • A love of computer games.

 

Other Information

 

  • This is a full-time office-based position from our offices in Exeter, UK.
  • We will offer a competitive market-rate salary dependent on your level.
  • We will provide high spec hardware for you to work from in the office.
  • For the right candidates, we may be able to assist with relocation expenses and logistics.
  • You'll want to hone your skills in "Golf with Your Friends" before joining us.

 

To Apply

Please be aware that we do not have the ability to sponsor visas and so all applicants must have the right to work in the UK.

 

In order to apply, please send an email to [email protected] with your CV and why you’d be suitable for this role.
